Is there a cat magazine in Canada?

Hi

I was wondering if there is a Canadian Cat Magazine? I was looking at Cat Fancy but because I'm Canadian I have to add another 18 dollars to the price per year. I don't even know if the magazine is worth it.

So I was wondering if anyone gets Cat Fancy and if it is worth it? Or if there is a Canadian published Cat magazine?

Thanks
Debbie

Not a fan of Cat Fancy, although I do still very occasionally buy an issue here and there if it has a topic I'm interested in. It tends to be way too much in the back pockets of big pet food.

I don't know of any Canadian cat magazines, but there is a good one for both cats and dogs called Animal Wellness that takes a more holistic approach to pet care. It's published out of Ontario and frequently features Canadian products, although it's not geared specifically to Canadians. They only make 6 issues a year and you can subscribe to the digital format for cheaper.

I get Cat Fancy. It is ok. I only really enjoyed one issue and that was a special issue dedication to animal rescue. It was the June/08 issue.

I wish they would do more on animal-welfare/rescue. I think they should work with shelters more and making the plight of pet-overpopulation to more readers. I don't really like how they have pages and pages of "breeders".

Thanks ACO22. I have asked the magazine person at Walmart if she could get Cat Fancy and I will be able to skim thru the magazine before I buy it. So that will be good.

Yes, there's a Canadian cat magazine! I just started editing one a few months ago. We've published only two editions so far and we're currently working on the third.

Our website is www.forloveofcats.ca

We're always looking for great stories, photographs and articles. All the info is on our website.

And now I'm going to figure out how to get my avatar on this site!

That reminds me, I recently learned that the publishers of Animal Wellness magazine are now also publishing a cat version: Feline Wellness. Haven't seen it anywhere yet and it's only published 4 times a year, but I really like their holistic message.

CCA may publish one

It's been quite a long time since I was involved in the cat fancy, but Canadian Cat Association (the registering body for purebred pedigree cats in Canada) used to publish a magazine.
